    How does she perform for you?

    I'm looking for a 24" Axe and the flat grind would be easier to maintain the convex grind in my GB SFA so I downloaded some reviews just today.

    A co-worker borrowed mine and used this for camping with his family. He stated that it's great for around the camp usage but not for extended trail hiking. I can't fault him for that.

    Anyone have experience with Estwing's camper's axe (26" long handle)?

    Yep. The blade is fairly thin do it is good at limbing and chopping through smaller trees and logs, or splitting kindling. Not so good at splitting rounds due to thin blade. I like the steel handle for durability but can't choke up on it for one handed splitting. Not long enough for felling trees of much size of course. Overall it does well at exactly as it is named: for camp chores.

    For home use or more serious woods adventures I prefer a double bit axe and hatchet. For firewood splitting I like the Fiskars splitting axe.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have one of their hawks and grew up with their camp ax (short leather washer handle). I like them due to them being a solid piece of steel as opposed to a head on stick.

    I think my Council Tool Forest Servoce Edition Boys Axe is my favorite.
